Send some love to a student away from home


Dear parents of college kids,

Now that we are pretty much done with the first month of school, is your nest starting to feel a little too empty? Do you wish there was a way you could let your "kid" know you are thinking of them, even if they go to school hundreds or even thousands of kilometers away? Pelikan Box has the answer.

This is a very cool subscription box! They kindly sent me a box to review for my readers, Here's what was inside:


Right off the bat, I love how this is packaged! It really feels like getting a present, a goodie box of things chosen with a young person in school in mind. On their website, Pelikan Box states that each box will contain "items needed for college and university life as well as treats, healthy snacks, and surprise items." The box I received definitely delivers on that claim.

I also really appreciate the fact that PelikanBox includes a "What's in the Box?" card that outlines all of the products, including URLs for the manufacturers and a description for each time. (Seriously, wyhy don't all sub boxes do this? It is a huge help for thos of us who want more info!

The products in this box are:

Kewaza Red Banana Energy Balls - A mixture of dates, red banana, chocolate chips, and almonds, these were absolutely delicious! I would buy these for sure. Great for an on-the-go snack, or for those marathon study sessions.


Purple rooster socks from Good Luck Sock -- Made from cotton and spandex, these socks arey very soft and very comfy. My 9-year-old daughter who has adult sized feet tried these on for me and loved them!


Poo-Pourri -- Yep, you read that right. This is designed to be sprayed into the toilet bowl before you, well, you know.....so that "no one else will ever know." I haven't tested it for its intended purpose, but I can attest to the fact that it does have a lovely, fresh citrus scent.


Pencil Case by April Gold Bags -- This small bag would be awesome for holding pencils, makeup brushes or other small essentials. It feels very well made and sturdy, and i like the sort of "tribal" look about it. I think this might find its way into my purse for those "extra things" that seem to always be floating around my bag, never to be found again.


Cowboy Crunch by Davenport Sensations is a snack mix made of golden wheat nuggets, peanuts, and cashews coated in white and milk chocolate. This stuff is addictive! Perfect balance of sweet and a touch of salt. Which may explain why there is no photo. But I admit to nothing :)

Magnetic Bookmark by www.craftedvan.com -- Is this not the CUTEST bookmark you've ever seen in your life? I love this! It's currently marking a place in a cookbook. I love the cute design, and coffee? I mean REALLY? It's like they know me. (Perfect for those coffee-loving college kids, too).


I think this is such a great subscription box, and i love that it's catered to post-secondary students away from home. What a great way to send a bit of love to your student away from home every month. They'll know you are thinking of them, and they'll get a box of fun and useful items they are sure to love. If you have a young person in your life who is away at school, consider signing up for Pelikan Box and send them a little bit of love, no matter where they are.

Pelikan Box is $34.99 per month, and shipping is $9.99. They ship to addresses anywhere in Canada.
